Hello, my name is Karina. I graduated from USC with a bachelor's in Spanish and I have a master's in education with an emphasis in curriculum and instruction from CSUF. I recently finished my Multiple Subjects Credential preparation program as well. I have over 10 years of experience tutoring students of all grade levels (K-12) in various subjects and I have always seen academic improvement in all of the students I have tutored. I love helping students succeed in school! I believe that tailoring lessons to fit the needs of each student is very important for their success.
